Last month we wrote about how the European Commission is running a consultation on the ‘Regulatory environment for platforms, online intermediaries, data and cloud computing and the collaborative economy’. While this is an important opportunity to provide feedback, it’s not been easy for individuals to parse the Commission’s long and complicated questionnaire.
The Copyright4Creativity coalition (of which COMMUNIA is a member) relaunched its YouCan.FixCopyright.eu site to help people respond to the questions. This tool is useful because it will allow respondents to select questions that are relevant to them, and provides a “human readable” explanation of what the Commission’s questions mean.
The consultation runs until 30 December 2015 and the C4C’s YouCan.FixCopyright.eu form will be available until midnight 25 December, as they need to transfer the collected responses from the site to the European Commission. Here’s what you can do to help:
If you have 20 minutes:
- Go to YouCan.FixCopyright.eu questionnaire, chose your ‘persona’, and fill in the questions you want to respond to, from those we selected as relevant to copyright.
If you have 2 minutes:
- Send an email to your networks to inform them of this initiative and encourage them to participate.
If you have 20 seconds:
- Tweet about the consultation and our tool. “#FixCopyright: Go to YouCan.FixCopyright.eu & respond by 25 Dec 23:59 to the #copyright questions of the @EU_Commission & @GOettingerEU”
